Now that the special status of local government in Donbas is extended for another year, Ukraine expects that Russia will live up to its commitments within Minsk agreements. President Petro Poroshenko said that at the plenary session of PACE in Strasbourg on Wednesday.

‘Russian occupant forces and their sidekicks have been violating the ceasefire almost all the time. Last week, the Ukrainian parliament passed the law aiming to create favorable conditions for peaceful regulation of the situation in the occupied areas of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. We expect Russia to finally abide by its commitments in the security area, which is in line with Minsk agreements,’ Poroshenko said.

The Ukrainian leader said he hoped that such steps would contribute to the eventual deployment of the UN peacekeepers in Donbas.
